Except when McCain said, "...FESTOONED with Christmas ornaments.." I was playing the Debate Drinking Game-Home Version, and had to chug my bottle of creme de menthe. Woo-hoo! Then Obama said, "...orgy of spending..." and I had to...err...never mind.
So, here's my suggestion for the next Presidential Debate: make it a musical. I'm thinking something along the lines of "West Side Story:"
WEST WING STORY
*The curtain rises to a dimly-lit stage...illuminated by a single lamp post. As the opening number, "Cool" begins, McCain and Obama -- leaning against their podiums -- begin snapping their fingers to the beat.*
Obama to McCain: "Boy, boy, crazy boy....Be COOL BOY!"
McCain: "GOT A ROCKET! IN MY POCKET!"
Obama and Jim Lehrer: "Be Cool, Boyyyy!"
Then Larry Craig bursts on-stage, wearing nothing but a toilet paper tutu and tap shoes: "I feel pretty...oh, so pretty....I feel pretty, and witty and GAAAAY!...And I pity, any girl who isn't me todayyyy.." They have to drag him off with a shepherd's hook.
